Charles Chaplin / US, 1952 / 137 min.
Calvero is a variety artiest on the way out. When he prevents a young ballerina from committing suicide, hope seems to re-appear for both of them. Chaplin’s melancholy humorous look back on the life of a clown has autobiographical elements.
As all the greats from the history of film need revisiting from time to time, distributor Piece of Magic is re-releasing no less than nine (restored) films by the genius Charles Chaplin in international cinemas.
